From sketch to finished illustration

Find out how I plan an illustration from start to finish. First I decide what I want to draw and look up inspiration in the big wide web. Then I figure out the shapes and where I want to put things. Then I write a list of things I want to have in the picture, a garden gnome, a painter, pots, pans, toaster, marmalade, a pig lamp, amelie, photos … After that I look up references for those things (here all from the film ‘Amélie’). Then comes the messy line art and when I’m pleased with the outcome, I go over it with cleaner lines. Last but not least I colour it in 🙂

Some Coverart

In this blogpost you can find one of my recent projects in university. I had a course this semester where we made some book covers. I plan on making some more over my summer break because I had a lot of fun drawing those.

Since December

Hello dear someone, who reads these blog posts (wondering if anybody reads them at all). Last year (or you could say last month) I bought myself an iPad Pro. I debated really long with myself if I should get it or not, but you already know the outcome, so… Then there were the holidays and I spent them at my parents house and had a lot of time on my hand. I used this time to play around with the different brushes and stuff you could do on Procreate and I would like to show you what came out of it (if you haven’t already seen it on my Instagram).

And today I made some new banners and a logo for my etsy and this website you are currently reading.
